tateconcepts Posted November 16, 2021 Share Posted November 16, 2021 (edited) I built this TIE Fighter build for ML with VR use and recently been using it for a boost in GPU mining. I have an issue where I am experiencing what appears to be coolant evaporation over time and thermal throttling on the dual RTX 3080 graphics. All components are cooled by Corsair components with an XD5 pump, dual (2) XG7 RGB 30-Series Ventus GPU water blocks, an XC7 CPU water block, dual (2) XR5 360mm radiators, Three (3) QL120 fans and Three (3) SP120 fans. Over the past month or so since I filled the reservoir back within 1cm or so, it has dropped again to almost 3cm which is almost a half an inch in just under two months. I don't see any leaks anywhere and tested this with a paper towel in various areas when I brought the build online. It has consistently had warmer than expected temps since it was built, however I feel I should be getting about 10C lower temps on the GPU. I have an external Aorus RTX 3080 Gaming Box about six feet from that unit and its running at 40-43C. I know the soft tubing is not ideal however I felt it best until the temps can be optimized. The current flow of this is XD5 Pump > XC7 on i9-10850K > XR5 Radiator (top exhaust) > XG7 on RTX 3080 > XG7 on RTX 3080 > XR5 Radiator (side intake) Feedback and thoughts welcome, thank you!
